Today I would like to discuss about forum marketing which is a meeting place for open discussions about commercial products and services. To start with, we must first understand that a forum is a public meeting or assembly for open discussion. The communication system that we use for assemblage in today’s internet marketing arena can be very powerful once its proper usage is understood.

marketing your business on a forumTo fully comprehend how powerful a marketing forum can be we must also understand that marketing is the commercial processes involved in promoting, selling and distributing a product or service. Now that we understand the two individual words “forum” “marketing”, we can now get into more specific details on how to best use this type of communication system.

Many are mislead or mis-directed on how powerful a meeting place for open discussion can really be. If used properly, you should have no problems with the commercial market of the sales and distribution of your products or services.

If you are going to use a forum to market your products or services, or in other words your merchandise, then you must take part in that marketing community and participate and share with others. It really is this simple! There are too many that teach you should go by a forum and make a post to “look like” you are trying to participate, however the fact of the matter is that this is the wrong way to market.

Making those one line posts or using copy and paste from other sites are not going to get you any respect and most likely, on monitored forums will just end up getting you banned. There are far better ways for promoting, selling, and distributing your products and services.

The key is really quite simple – Participate and become involved in the open discussions with others. This means learn, share, and grow with other like minded individuals. If you know of a marketing strategy that works, something you actually tested yourself, then feel free to share it with others. If you have learned from another forum thread that discussed a step by step marketing plan, then comment on it and share your obtained results using that marketing method with others.

When you participate in the above mentioned fashions, you not only build relationships, but you also build trust and credibility and become known as a person with integrity and strength of character. You will be more successful in your marketing endeavors when others perceive you as a real caring person as opposed to a programmed robot partaking in less than trustworthy methods, or as a shark swimming the waters of forums and public meeting places only as a personal hunting ground.

I understand that by human nature we are lazy and desire shortcuts, but the truth is that there honestly aren’t any shortcuts that will be beneficial to you. If you want to build a business to make money online then you must work at that business to make it successful. Participating in an open assemblage is a great place to start!

There are many marketing strategies online that you can use to market your business. While some focus on social media marketing others spend their time on video marketing. Both of these are great marketing avenues to help build and grow your business.

When marketing online though it does require that you multi-task and you several marketing methods to promote your website business. While you can focus on 1 marketing method and maybe even drive some good targeted website traffic, it will limit your business in the long run.

This is why it is important to put several marketing methods into play when doing website promotion. Because web site promotion is a constant thing that must be done, many outsource some of the work so they can focus on the marketing tactics that they are skilled at.

I personally think we all make the mistake of not being focused on a wide variety of marketing though. It is natural human instinct to focus on the things that we are skilled at. The problem with this is other areas of marketing are being ignored that could be utilized to drive additional traffic and increase sales.

Now I am not saying that you should increase your work load or work more hours online. As stated above many do outsource some of the work and this is a very smart business decision for those that do. Hiring others that are skilled at something you are not will only help your online business grow.

There are many different sectors in marketing and I am sure everyone has seen marketing plans and ebooks for article marketing, video marketing, social media marketing, classified ads marketing, email marketing, and etc. All of these areas of marketing is a vital piece of the puzzle to have a successful long term business.

Forum marketing is even used by some although it is used completely wrong by many from what I have seen. Forum marketing can be very productive for your business if done the proper way. Utilizing forum marketing tips you can increase your websites awareness.

There is one aspect of marketing that I have not seen many take advantage of that will increase your marketing efforts and increase your website traffic. This is one of the most underused marketing strategies online, which is surprising considering how beneficial it is to any website business.

This is the continuation of the article marketing myths exposed series. If you have not read the first part then do so now Marketing Myths Exposed Part I before reading the below.

Posting Your Articles To 100 Directories Is Spamming

Those that spread this myth are not only misinformed but they are also foolish. These people not only have no understanding of marketing but they have no understanding of how an online business functions. The fact is you should be posting your article to as many places as possible, you can post the same exact article if you choose to do so. It is your choice if you choose to spin your article before posting it on other websites.

While posting your article keep in mind if you do choose to spin it then there are many benefits that you can reap from this. By spinning your article you have the ability to pick up more publishers that are willing to republish your articles on their blogs. This is only one benefit of having spun articles, but as the above paragraph indicates you should be using a proper spinner tool.

You also want to keep in mind that there are many article directories that are nothing but glorified ad sense websites. These are the type of article directories you would do best to stay clear of and the reason why is because the ad sense could cost you visitors to your website. Many of these glorified ad sense article directories are built for one purpose and that is to get visitors on the article directory to click on ad sense ads. When all these visitors click on these ads they never see your article.

You should be posting to an ad free article directory that gives you link juice and does not steal away your clicks.

You Should Be Posting To Only High PR Websites

This is the type of advice that if you choose to listen to will destroy your business. Just concentrating on high PR websites is a huge mistake because the fact is PR means very little. You should be concentrating on marketing your website on related websites and any other kind of website that has your target audience, even if it is not related. The PR of those websites should be the last thing that you need to concern yourself with.

PR which is also known as page rank is not used by any other search engine other than Google. There are many other search engines that should be a part of your marketing strategies such as Bing and Yahoo. There are many other search engines which should all be a part of your marketing strategies.

Remember PR is Page Rank and not a website rank like many think it is. You may see a site that has a PR 6 but that is only the index of that site. The inner pages of that same site in most cases will be a PR 0 or even unranked. This means when someone claims to be posting on PR 6 website, they are really posting on a PR 0 page.

You Should Post Only On Do Follow Sites

This bad advice and myth has run around for some time now and even till this day you will see marketing forums talk about do follow links. The fact is the no follow attribute was created to mark advertising and affiliate links on a website. This way the search engine knows what type of links these are and they should give them less weight.

Yes I said less weight because the fact is spiders still follow the no follow link and still gives credit. Link juice can still be passed on no follow links even-though those so called experts say it can not. This has been tested and proven by many marketers.

Another thing to remember is that if your site only has do follow links then you are telling the search engines you are trying to manipulate them. There is no website that will only ever get do follow backlinks and only be posted on related websites. Do follow link may hold more weight but the fact is you should be getting links from both and stop worrying about if a site is do follow or not.

There are many myths that are spread throughout Internet marketing about marketing with articles. These myths are normally started by one of the marketers that tried to sell this product or that product. The problem is once these myths are spread around many newbies get confused and do not know how to do article marketing properly.

Duplicate Content And The Penalty Of Google

Duplicate content penalty is one of the biggest myths that have been spread around. Many are misinformed that if you take an article and post the article on several websites that Google will penalize you for posting those articles on other sites.

This is a complete and total incorrect statement, Google does not and will not penalize any website for doing syndication. Syndication is taking an article (or other content) and republishing that article on many different sites. When you syndicate your articles and have them republished on many different websites they are still indexed by Google and you can very well dominate the entire front page of Google.

Some would have you believe that Google would only index one of your articles, this is a completely false statement. As I have stated you can dominate the entire front page of Google with just one article. There is no duplicate content penalty, this is 100% a myth!

The Posting Of Your Article On Other Sites First

There are many, including article directory owners that will tell you that you must post your article on their directory first. This also is a 100% false statements, remember this is your unique content and there is no one that can tell you what you must do with your content. The fact is you should be posting your unique article on your own website or blog first.

Once you have your article posted on your website or blog then you should be building back links to your website or blog by other means besides article directories. You can build back links to your website or blog through bookmarking, document sharing websites, video upload websites, and web 2.0 properties.

Once you build these back links to your website or blog then you can submit your article to other places. The reason why you were doing this is because you want to keep the authority to your website or blog instead of giving your authority away by posting your unique content on other sites first.

Content Spinners Are Useless Tools In Marketing

This is not only a myth but a downright lie! Although there are some self-proclaimed marketers that has tried to use the false duplicate content penalty to sell useless junkie spinners, this does not mean all content spinners are useless. When using a properly built article spinning tool you can produce very well written and beautifully crafted articles. By using a human controlled spinner you can produce 20+ articles from just one article.

A human controlled spinner is a tool that is fully controlled by the writer. When the writer controls all of the text that goes into the article then you will always have a fully readable article. Some will try to convince you that it takes a long time for you to set up an article to be spun. These people even try to convince you that they can write articles faster without a spinner. This also is not only a myth but another downright lie, you can produce 20+ articles from one article in approximately 2 hours by using the proper spinning tool.

Internet User Ask:

how can i develop my internet marketing skill?

Marketing a business online is the same as marketing one offline, you may use different methods but the marketing is still the same. There are certain skills you should posses even if you are going to outsource some of your work.

You always should have a marketing plan with any website / business. This marketing plan is going to require skills in certain areas such bookmarking, social media strategies, article syndication for example. You want to take each skill that is required for your business plan and focus on that one skill and learn as much as possible.

Learning a skill does not mean reading some lame ebook by some self proclaimed guru. It means going out and testing things, learn what you can from ebooks, forum post, marketing blogs and then go out testing what you have learned and see what works best for “YOU”.

Once you have learned one skill then move onto the next and do the same. Again even if you are going to outsource (which you will need to do) it is still best that you learn the skills you are going to outsource. By learning these skills you can relay onto your outsourcers how you want things done.

Once you have learned all the skills in your marketing plan then it is time to put it into action. Never forget to test things along the way because one big part of marketing is testing things for your business. I have a full proven marketing plan on my internet marketing forum but even that states that you should always test things.

A internet user ask:

I have a blog that posts two 500 word articles everyday and currently has 300 articles after 3 months. But now I find I am running out of ideas for articles. Is it ok to bring the scheduled post to something like 1 per week? Is it bad to completely stop in terms of SEO?

I prefer to set my blogs to 1 post per day and I normally set them up about 2 weeks in advance. You could slow down and go to 1 post per day or even 1 post every few days.

Just making blog post though is not exactly going to get you what you want. You need to make sure that you are syndicating your blog post. You must bookmark them and share them with social media websites.

As for SEO – Do not always focus on trying to sell something to your readers. Try to engage with your readers and supply informative post that have no hidden agenda.

There are many things to take into consideration here. If you decide to slow down with the blog post then maybe on the days a post is not made you could post comments on the currently posted blog post.

You can always get new ideas by reading news rss feeds. A great place to do this is by creating an account at NetVibes and selecting a keyword based on your niche. The next screen will show you many feeds from around the web.
